Michigan Radio’s Picture Project is an experimental blog and forum for photographs that address Michigan people, places, events, and issues.

See the site for new features on Grand Rapids ArtPrize 2012 and Detroit Design Festival 2012.

Now in its fourth year, ArtPrize is an open art competition sprawling across downtown Grand Rapids--in galleries, on the street, and all over the city.

The Detroit Design Festival features the work of Southeast Michigan's creative community through fashion shows, lectures, and studio tours.

Photographer Doug Coombe captured the events as they happened.
